This museum located just off the Plaza de Armas as La Merced No 1001 houses the famous Ice Princess mummy named Juanita. She was found on the 6300meter + volcano of Ampato in 1995 by the Zarate’s and the anthropologist Dr. Reinhard. She was originally sacrificed on the summit of Ampato but had fallen many feet down the slopes as the ice melted around her. During 1995 the snow and ice on Ampato were melting quite fast because of the heat given off by a nearby volcanic explosion at the time.
